Bamboo is a natural, highly renewable resource growing to maturity in only three to five years. It is an ecologically-friendly flooring option which can help reduce global warming and dependence on dwindling timber resources.

- Extremely strong and hard.
- Easy to maintain and are able to be refinished, if over time, they become marred or discolored.
- Stylish in a variety of natural colors, and can take the “wear and tear” of everyday life.
